Barcelona presidential candidate Font backing move for Man City defender Garcia

Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font supports the move for Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.

Off contract in June, Garcia is wanted back at his former club - and is still leaning towards agreeing to the move.

For his part, Font says he won't interfere in the deal as it has his full support.

He explained: "I know that Eric García feels the colours of the club and is delighted to return to Barça. In addition, he is a central defender.

"It is a strategic recruitment."
